Where Detroit's Anarchists Live and Perform

From OZY

There’s a show or event for just about everyone. Anarchist or not.

Rolling up to the Trumbullplex, Detroit’s self-titled “Sexiest Anarchist Collective,” I’m seven minutes late for its weekly open mic night. After hustling up a long driveway separating the complex’s two-century-old brick houses to meet my contact, Chase (who wasn’t comfortable giving his last name), the warm-up act — a film screening — is still going strong in the barn-like performance space that stops the driveway’s eastward march. And Chase is nowhere to be found.

The full text is available at unquietdead.tumblr.com; we will be posting recordings of other chapters in the future.

The State and Revolution: Theory and Practice

From Anarchist Writers by Anarcho

This is almost my chapter in the anthology Bloodstained: One Hundred Years of Leninist Counterrrevolution (Oakland/Edinburgh: AK Press, 2017). Some revisions were made during the editing process which are not included here. In addition, references to the 1913 French edition of Kropotkin’s Modern Science and Anarchy have been replaced with those from the 2018 English-language translation. However, the bulk of the text is the same, as is the message and its call to learn from history rather than repeat it. I would, of course, urge you to buy the book.

From Anarchism and nerd stuff. by Emmi Bevensee

General artificial-intelligence is one of the most important ethical frontiers towards sustainable futures for human and post-human species. However, it is also one of humanity and other earth-spawned life’s greatest sources of existential risk (X-risk) as witnessed by the abundance of scholarly research in the field (Larks, 2018). General artificial intelligence isn’t just purchase recommendations from ecommerce sites and spam filters, it a degree of intelligence at or above human functioning that can be generalized into other domains. This means that it can’t just be more intelligent in in one area such as game machine learning as in AlphaGo and zero-knowledge AlphaGo (AlphaGo Zero, 2018). Like a human, it needs to be able to learn a wide range of skills and intelligences but this generally intelligent AI will ultimately surpass human minds through the acquisition of the materials it needs to fulfill its utility function.

“The Past of Trumpism is the Past of America”: With Tom Nomad

  • Posted on: 18 October 2018
  • By: thecollective

Starting off, Tom argues that one of the successes of Bannon and Trump, is that they have locked many on the Left into a constant cycle of shock and awe, often that keeps us in a constant social media feed back loop, at times venturing out to march in circles or take photos of our witty sign, but never developing a strategy, and often burning out very quickly. We then spend some time talking about what it would mean to develop a non-activist approach to confronting the major tensions we find today, and building a material force.
